I started trading with MT5 on fxview but later switched to MT4 with the same broker because most of the EAs that I was purchasing were compatible with MT4. Next account that I opened with IC Markets, I opted for MT4 in the first place :) Honestly I didn’t see any difference as such in the 2, but maybe I need to be on level 3 or 4 to be able to spot any minor intricacies.
Both the platforms are good but I am more comfortable using MT4 as their app is also very convenient to use. I place my orders most of the time from my smartphone. It is very easy to manage my two different accounts on Turnkeyforex and LMFX at one place.
I am also using the MT4 trading platform and use the STP account, still comfortable in use, although now broker offer to use MT5, I am not yet intention to use MT5, but maybe when I already use ECN account will trying to use MT5 trading platform.
